There is a version of that engine that comes with a rotostart setup. go to Amain hobbies and check there .26+ engines and youll see it . good luck . p.s .sounds like a great engine.

STS .28 you don't have to spend all the dough on a 'Rossi and you can buy hop-ups. Racernine uses STS only and he raced in the Silver State. He didn't use STS though, someone stole his ST and MBX-5 a couple months before.

screw that 528 all the way. tuned correctly with the 9mm insert I can get 8 1/2 minutes. If I go 8mm insert I can get longer thab that. Tonight I was the fastest truck on the track. Tqed both qualifiers and only used 2/3 tank in a 5 min run with temps at 210. I could have leaned it out more but it already had more than enough power. The bump start version is the the eb mods Rex 528. A little pricey but the best motor out in my opnion. Any 28 is going to gulp the fuel unless u put the carb restrictors. I think a p5 or vspec will be better for what u are looking for.

YES! The 528XR is a great engine. If you tune it for power and not heat you WILL get 8 - 10 minutes of run time. The guys running too rich get crap for run times! I love this engine. It does take getting used to the extreme torque though...

i have seen the same engine run, and it was pretty bad arse..so i couldnt agree more..lol

although i was able to get longer run times with my P5 considering it being a .21 (8 to 9 min)

i have also seen an RB motor run.and it to me looked good as well..

but my P5 has done me well, i cant see myself needing anymore power than what it has already.

I have an RB .21" in my truggy. It is more than enough power for Uk tracks and revs like a banshee. I realy dont think you would need any more power than a good .21" as the truggs are only a little heavier than a 1/8th buggy. Most of the torque produced by the bigger motors is wasted through the use of standard clutch's.

I use the STS 28. This this has gobs of power. I have gone through two gallons without a rebuild and it is still running strong. Racernine.com has them for reasonable price and they are available in bump start version. If not you can get the back plate for bump start for 8 dollars.
